Hunter residents are being urged to have their say about the concept plan for Broadmeadow’s Sports and Entertainment Precinct at the final community consultation sessions this weekend.

They’ll be held on Sunday at Broadmeadow Showground for the Farmers Market between 10am and 12pm as well as the forecourt of McDonald Jones Stadium at 3:30pm.

The proposed concept plan is looking at ideas for the site’s long-term future and issues that need to be addressed.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald says they’re looking for everybody to have their say.

“Whether you’re interested in [the] sports side, the entertainment side, the transport side, the residential aspect to it — we’re looking for everybody’s input. I think this is one of the next big exciting steps forward for Newcastle and the Hunter. This is really a chance now to hit the reset button and get the best overall concept to bring in all those elements.”

He says this Sunday is the last opportunity for residents to provide feedback for this stage of the plan.

However, if people miss their chance there are other ways they can get involved.

“If you can’t get down…you can still have a look at it on the website. Just go to Venues NSW and follow it to ‘Concept Plan.’ Just follow [the links] through,” Mr. MacDonald said.
